Pelosi-AOC spat puts spotlight on Democratic infighting over race

  • Democrats rally to defend US senator from 'ugly' far-right attacks

Verily, control now belongs to the four merry populists, Ocasio-Cortez, Omar, Tlaib and Pressley, who would rather Tweet than take a seat, who would risk defeat over being discreet - even if that means boxing fellow Democrats into a corner they can't electorally escape.

In a public jab at the chief of staff, the House Democrats' account posted a screenshot of Chakrabarti's old tweet on Friday, asking why he was singling out Davids and telling him to "keep her name out of your mouth".

"Every family I spoke to said they were being well cared for", the vice president said, criticizing Democrats for their "harsh rhetoric" about the conditions.

Before the voting got underway, the chairman of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs Eliot Engel said that if the President wants to go to war, he needs to come to Congress first.

"I don't think people have to be personally racist to enable a racist system", Chakrabarti wrote.

Outstanding participants of the Congressional Dusky Caucus (CBC) additionally sided with Pelosi and criticized Ocasio-Cortez for her remarks.

What's emerged since then has been a remarkable back-and-forth, including Ocasio-Cortez blasting Pelosi for singling out women of color in a "disrespectful" way.

"All of these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world", Pelosi told the Times.

The gulf between the establishment wing of the Democratic party represented by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the "Squad" of progressive freshman lawmakers including Reps.

Meeks stressed there weren't any current plans to challenge Ocasio-Cortez, but left the door open: "If you get in the ring, expect that people are going to start throwing punches."... She should treat Nancy Pelosi with respect.

Ocasio-Cortez's Chief of Staff was also attacked for comparing Democratic moderates to segregationists in a tweet, which has since been deleted.

"You got a complaint?"

Rest assured, President Donald Trump will foist all of these unsafe proposals onto the eventual Democrat nominee, whether they fully agree with them or not, meaning they are bolted at the hip with the "squad" come hell or high water. "For millions of us, these women of color in Congress represent generations of blood, sweat, and tears; of struggle for us to have representation", said Netroots moderator Aimee Allison.

Pelosi has cast the sniping among House Democrats as a threat to achieving common goals, one of them to defeat Trump's bid for reelection. "I don't think most of us are".

As one of our loyal readers, we ask you to be our partner. Her spokeswoman, Lina Francis, said afterward that Pressley was trying to make the point that "diversity at the table doesn't matter if there's not real diversity in policy".

Ocasio-Cortez appeared at a rally for Brent Welder, Davids' opponent in 2018.

A group of progressive organizations issued a statement Saturday saying they were concerned that senior Democratic Party leaders and their aides "have been escalating attacks on new leaders in the party who have been rightfully advocating a stronger approach to holding the Trump administration accountable to human rights abuses being committed on the border and against immigrants". But this year the only interruption came from a group in the audience who waved a banner reading, "Women of color lead, thanks for being #BoldAF".
